This gorgeous suit was made from a taupe coloured wool in the 1950s. It is cut in a classic stroller style with a loose fitting swing coat and a straight skirt. The notched label collar leads to two fabric covered buttons which fasten the coat at the bust. The long length jacket also features large  pockets at the hip with triangular pocket flaps. Inside, the jacket is lined in grey satin and has a maker's label for Vogue Couturier Design. The skirt is adorned with a large centre pleat and closes with a metal side zipper and hooks above. 

Jacket:

Bust: 41”

Shoulders: 16 3/4” seam to seam 

Length: 31 1/2”

 

Skirt

Waist: 27”

Hips: 40”

Length: 29 1/2”

 

The suit is in very good condition with only a tiny mark to the back of the jacket and a hole hidden in the pleat of the skirt as pictured. The top jacket button is missing but this would not have been closed anyway. There are also some marks and a tiny hole to the lining. 

 

This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.

 

They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:

 

1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits

or

2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)

 

They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.

 

We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
